Georgia Aquarium is Open to the Public

If you've visited us in the past, please note these changes have been put into place to keep our guests, staff, and animals safe:

  • Aquarium Entry

    Entry to Georgia Aquarium will be scheduled in 30-minute timeslots. Your admission is only valid during the timeslot you select. Please arrive on time.

  • Masks No Longer Required

    Masks are not required but are encouraged for both Georgia Aquarium guests and team members. Masks continue to be required during Animal Encounter Programs.

  • Hand Sanitizer Stations

    For added safety and convenience, you will find hand sanitizing stations located throughout the aquarium.

  • Plexiglass Barriers

    You will find plexi-glass barriers installed at most major viewing windows to provide space for your group, and additional separation from other guests.

  • Social Distancing Markers

    We have placed social distancing reminders and plexiglass barriers throughout the building, but we need you to be mindful of the spaces to help keep everyone safe.

  • Air Filtration

    The Aquarium conducts a 100% outside air flush twice daily to pull more fresh air from the outside into the building. Along with our hospital-grade MERV 8 pre-filters and MERV 13 on our rooftop units, we utilize a mix of UV lights and-Polar ION generators located inside our air handlers to help kill mold, bacteria, and viruses in the spaces.

  • Where to Go

    The main entrance is using no-contact turnstiles. Please follow signage onsite to the main entrance and have your ticket barcodes ready to scan from your phone or from your print at home ticket.

Please Note

Georgia Aquarium is operating at a reduced guest capacity. Guests are asked to arrive at their ticketed time to ensure entry.

In an effort to conserve paper, Georgia Aquarium no longer prints maps. We encourage our guests to download the Georgia Aquarium app to access a map of the Aquarium.
